    Default M7 or Dirty English

    I had samples of each one, I like both, but don't want to buy both. M7 is too smoky sometimes, but Dirty English doesn't project far enough far anyone else to smell it on me. Help!

    IMO, M7 (vintage) is most definitely worth owning. I can't say the same for Dirty English.

    I don't know either very well SeanJuan but as a frequent reader and poster in here, clearly M7 has the much better rep and more respect.

    M7 imo

    Dirty English is somewhat similar to Gucci PH1, but not as good.

    I find M7 to smell like a sauna (the scent of the wood without the sweaty people) with a little sweetness to it.
    I didnt get a chance to smell it on me but on paper thats how it smelled imo.


    Btw

    you can find dirty english in TJMaxx / Marshalls for really cheap...3.4oz for 20 i think

    I actually voted for Dirty English. I have samples of Dirty English and a mini of M7. I haven't really even worn my Dirty English, but I do feel that M7 is gonna be a frag that should only be worn on rare occasions. It is definitely a cold weather scent, and even then, I see it as being a bit rough for daytime use.

    I thought this also, but apparently it does. I sprayed 8 on me and could hardly smell it and my wife said I was wearing to much. Even with 3 sprays my wife said she could still smell it 10 hrs later - I had thought it gone after the first hour. IMO this is an odd scent that some people can smell and others can't.

    Haven't tried M7, but DE isn't my cup of tea. It's quite dry, and animalic.. has the body odor smell going on. Dirty Ewwglish

    It really just depends on your taste. These aren't like two near-identical but differently priced colognes, like say, Creed's GIT or Bond No. 9's Chez Bond (or even GIT vs. Davidoff's Cool Water). These are two very differently priced and completely differently scented colognes. Whereas, like all YSL fragrances, M7 doesn't usually come cheap, Dirty English can be found cheap at many discount department stores or even pharmacies (granted in discount department stores the condition of the product can be extremely rough from being handled, sprayed, and sniffed by dozens of people, and in pharmacies, it's not as cheap.) Not to mention the sheer difference of scent - M7 is a fresh, eager-to-please (IMO) fragrance, Dirty English is a peppery, animalic, "dirty" fragrance - it's out for blood. It's not trying to make anyone happy, and it seems to even trick some people into thinking its fairly good staying power is poor. Really the only thing these two have in common is the wood, and the two types of woods are so different that's not even much in common.

    When it all boils down, it's just what you like and what you're willing to pay for.

    I'm really suprised that I'm the only one here that suggested Dirty English. M7 is certainly a quality frag, but as a possible signature scent? As for Dirty English, maybe it's not the next great thing, but at least it has some citrus to make it more suitable for summer. Maybe this whole exercise is like the age old question: A punch to the face, or a punch to the gut.

    M7 Fresh. M7 is just too much for me. But if you like M7 buy it, its truly original.

    I'm not sure if the OP is looking for a signature scent.

    M7 is terrific, albeit sometimes difficult to wear out of the house.

    Can't speak to Dirty English.

    IMHO Dirty English is more wearable on a daily basis. It seems to me that while it is more "dirty", it also hase notes which give it almost universal likability. M7 on the other hand may not be loved by everyone, and may not be wearable every day, but will make you stand out a bit more. I own both, and have both in regular rotation, but find myself reaching for M7 quite a bit more, as it has a certain addictive quality that DE does not have. Good luck choosing, b/c these are both good frags.

    M7 is grossly overrated.
